Move over, Empire. Deadline reports The X-Files and FOX’s new series 9-1-1 will take over Wednesday nights this winter.
Currently, Empire and Star share the Wednesday-night timeslot on FOX, but the two shows will be on hiatus when both The X-Files and 9-1-1 premiere in January.
From Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, 9-1-1 “explores the high-pressure experiences of police, paramedics and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations.” The cast includes Connie Britton, Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, and Rockmond Dunbar.
9-1-1 debuts on FOX on January 3rd at 9 p.m. ET/PT, following the season 11 premiere of The X-Files at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
